Artist Statement

Tapestry soothes the soul whether you are making the work or viewing it. It is painting with fibers, almost in the literal sense. Tapestry is basically a solitary endeavor as weavers today handle the entire process that a whole guild or village used to do. We design the image, select the type of yarns and colors, and do our own sewing and mounting of the pieces. Many even spin and dye their own yarns and may even raise their own sheep or Alpaca. I prefer commercially processed yarns with consistent dye lots from manufacturers that sell a high-quality product. I use natural fibers: Wool, silk, cotton, ramie, linen, bamboo, and rayon.

Tapestries, like paintings, can be used anywhere in the home or office and are easy to care for. All my pieces are one-of-a-kind. I enjoy the challenge of each design being different, and you will be assured of owning work that is as unique as you are.
